Notable for her work as a fashion blogger and model, she is perhaps most famous as the victim of a non-fatal airplane propeller accident in which she severed a hand and lost an eye. She details her recovery in her memoir Still Lolo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family's Journey of Hope.
The daughter of Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs, she spent her childhood in Dallas, Texas.
Several months after her accident, she sat for an interview on the Today Show.
She married E! News personality Jason Kennedy in 2014. In September 2021, they announced that they're expecting their first child together.
She and fellow model Hanne Odiele both suffered serious accidents that put their careers on hold.
